This is one of the many hotels on the Tuktuk peninsula. They have a swimming pool, several spots to chill out during the day, a huge restaurant... They also have their local Batak band and dancers on most evenings. We had a room with lake view and hot water. It had no fringes but I was quite satisfactory. The bathroom... More

Spend two nights here. Great spot on the lake. You can use the swimmingpool from another hotel, 10min.walk. you can always swim in the lake, big rock underneath to stand on half way into the cold water. They have a show on fridaynight. Nice but simple.

We booked 3 rooms and lucky enough we get the room with the lake view. The panoramic view was splendid and you can even dive-in and swimming there! The room were neat and simple, with a large bathroom space. The air were a bit cooler especially in the evening and in the morning. The shops and restaurant located nearby are... More

There are plenty of reviews about the problems here, so I think saying don't bother suffices. But read on for details. My biggest problem came at the start and really ruined the place for me. At the ferry before going to the island they have the most aggressive tout I've ever seen, and I lived and worked on a tourist... More

We stayed 4 nights. The place is quite big and turistic, we liked it when it was quieter the first 2 nights...then it filled up with Indonesian tourists staying there for the Easter break. The room are big and so the bathrooms. We had hot shower which was really a luxury after 2 weeks :) It was impressive the absence... More

When taking ferry to a tuktuk I was approached by a man named Pulju, who was working for Samosir Cottage. I was arriving in Chinese New Year so prices were double the normal cost. Yet Pulju made good deal and I got room for half price right next to the lake. Perfect location. Pulju arranged lot of things for me... More
